My next project for the trip to the wedding is to find an outfit...aaaaahhhh. After no success in the shops...I've taken the VERY brave step of ordering online. Fingers crossed it works out....I've gone for this STYLE. It's really fun browsing the styles and picking a colour. Being a bit of a fatty, they are custom making it to my size...
in this COLOUR...orange chiffon
now I just need to accessorise....a hat is a must...how about this?
And my legend of a long arm quilt - Greg at House of Quilts - has turned my wedding gift quilt around super fast for me so I started the binding last night. Only 10 more sleeps until I fly away....
Look who's knitting in public this week... our very own Prime Minister, Julia Gillard!
Somehow I think a lot of the world's big issues could be resolved if the pollies got together and chatted while they knitted ...perhaps on a blanket project :) ....rather than playing the slanging matches and petty games they insist on carrying on with. Their antics are juvenile and pathetic. Where's a politician with dignity and statesmanship these days?
This picture was in our local West Australian newspaper yesterday.
I was round at a friend's house last night for a little bit of quilting time. I'm putting a binding on a quilt that has been a UFO for eons, and Sandra was basting her quilt ready to start hand quilting. Her cat was not missing out on anything...Big Boy was right there bang smack in the middle of everything. What is it about cats and quilts?
Ready for the next stage .... off to the long arm quilter - Greg at House of Quilts. I'm hoping he has a Scottish Thistle pattern :).
I picked up a few border fabrics from Materialise and Sophie took a few photos to share on the shop's blog...click on the link to see some close-ups, along with another simple-and-inspirational finished quilt. I felt very chuffed she wanted to share....
I am thrilled with the quilt and can't wait to see it through the next stage. It changes at every stage.
Making this quilt under a deadline has completely given me back my creative mojo. My little head is buzzing with ideas, colours, patterns. I can't tell you how energising it feels. Like I've woken from a long long sleep.
